Sad news about bar lunch

I feel like such an idiot. We lived in Hudson for 3 years and we never went there--always said to each other, "we have to go there" and never did. Sad.
Tonight would be such a great night to go there. The clams oh so good. The bar leaning and looking like it might fall over.
The article makes no mention if they would let someone buy it and keep the tradition alive.
Dukegirl and Trufflehound... have you been to the Old Timer's in Clinton?
It has the same sort of ambience that BL had but is several pegs up... it has a great old bar and the food isn't that bad.
A 1930s-40s time warp (like most of Clinton ;-)... it isn't going anywhere in the near future...and it isn't that far from Hudson.
What's the deal with so many businesses closing down in the center of Hudson in the past month or so?
Harvest Cafe, Toyboat, and a copy shop along that same strip all have closed down in the last month or so. Now Hudson Bar Lunch?
Is there a landlord that owns all this property that decided to just up and raise the rent?
Actually, Bar Lunch's closing has nothing to do with rent. The owners owed over 15k in state taxes and couldn't come up with the money. They decided to close rather than have the doors locked and lose the building entirely. I good friend of mine has cooked/bar tended there for 26yr's. So sad, but very common these days.
